We were recommended this pool by a fellow Icelandic naturist . It was a beautiful drive there and the location is stunning and all the fellow nutters there were great . We have seen comments about the state of the changing rooms but in our...More

This was one of my favorite things I did, but that's because I like swimming outside in natural settings. The water was warm at best and while the hike up to the place was nice, it's marred by the really trashed changing rooms. They didn't...More

This was one of my favorite things that I did in Iceland! Had a little bit of trouble finding the parking lot (but I'm the worst at navigation), but it was pretty clear from there. It was about a 20 minute walk from there to...More

We had read about this online and decided to give it a go. The walk to the swimming pool was easy and fairly short- approx 15 minutes. There are a few changing rooms but these were untidy as people had left wet clothes and rubbish...More

I loved this place. It's tucked into a gorge surrounded by water falls. But it's a swimming pool, not a hot spring. The water is the perfect temperature for doing some laps, but too cold for soaking away your aches and worries. Four stars because...More

Easy hike in a beautiful valley lands you in this unassuming hot spring. We visited in late July, 2017 with our four kids (ages 6-11) and it was lots of fun. The kids enjoyed the hike in along the river where they threw rocks as...More

This place could have been an amazing one yet the volunteers gave the wrong decision to maintain basic facilities so that tourists can be more comfortable, such as a changing room. The consequence is that you get a filthy location right next to the beautiful...More

This place was amazing. The road is terrible and riddled with pot holes on the way in, but if you take your time it wasn't too bad. Once you park, walk into the valley and you will find an easy trail to follow. Not difficult...More

You have to walk to this secret spot - only about fifteen minutes across the lava fields - but on a cooler, misty day, this pool is perhaps not what you're looking for! The setting is just lovely, and the water was by no means...More

It’s not as secret as we would have wanted. There were few other people when we came and more people approaching when we were leaving. You should change to swimsuits in your car, because changing rooms are really dirty and smelly. It’s about 5-10min walk...More

I don't know where the campsite is, but the parking area to the hotspring is about 20-25 minute walk.

If you're concerned about road conditions, check Road.is online. They update it regularly and can give you a good idea of conditions. The secondary or F-Roads really change depending on the time of year.
